Cosmopolitan Philippines launched a brand-new relationship series in February to celebrate Love Month. Our Love Story is a proper look at the Cosmo girl's modern relationships: Episode one featured high school sweethearts, episode two put the spotlight on the LGBTQIA+ community, episode 3 highlighted long-distance relationships, and for this episode we're covering multicultural couples.
In this episode, meet Maridy and Rigo. They have been together for seven months, and they first met in 2010—because Rigo was Maridy’s brother’s taekwondo instructor! However, Rigo was already in a relationship, so they lost touch. They reconnected in 2021, and this time sparks flew.
The couple share what it was like starting a relationship during the pandemic, and their feelings when they first met each other's family. According to Maridy, she grew up with "strict Pinoy parents", and since Rigo was her first boyfriend it was an adjustment. But there *is* a happy ending to their story—"Now we’re married, [so it] worked out!"
